official name republic[edit]

Good Day, You are mentioning the fact of the official use on documents (which documents???, the Official Government Gazette in 1974 mentioned "Hellenic Republic") of the style "Republic of Greece" during the first years of restauration of Greek democracy. Can you be more specific about this? Did the Colonels use this style since they declare the republic in 1973 and did this usage continued by the democratic government after 1974? Can you mentioned the exact date when "Hellenic Republic" replaced "Republic of Greece" definitely? Perhaps the two styles were used interchangebly during a certain period? Hope you can help me. Thanks in advance. Sergeantmayer (talk) 10:55, 21 April 2012 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sergeantmayer (talkcontribs)

Template talk:Largest cities of Greece[edit]

Again, you are not contradicting any of my arguments. I am sorry, but the fact is that your opinion is flawed and not based on any official data.

I will say it for a third time: Piraeus is NOT a subdivision of Athens. Piraeus is part of the Periphery of Attica (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Attica_Periphery) as it is Athens (Athens is the capital of the Periphery of Attica), as it is Hydra (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydra_island), as it is Kythera (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kythera), etc. If we adhere to your rationale, then since Hydra belongs to the Periphery of Attica, then it should be considered a suburb of Athens or a part of Athens’ metropolitan area. This doesn’t make any sense.

Piraeus is administratively independent from Athens, it is a different city, and the only affinity between Athens and Piraeus is the fact that both of them belong to the Periphery of Attica, to the decentralized Region of Attica (http://www.apdattikis.gov.gr/), to the nation-state of Greece, to the European Union, to the European Continent, and to Planet Earth. End of Story!

As I have already argued, Piraeus has its own urban area, which includes 5 other municipalities, and officially is not a suburb of Athens.

As far as the official demographic data are concerned, you are again wrong. Check the following link that leads to the website of Greece’s Ministry of the Interior: http://www.ypes.gr/UserFiles/f0ff9297-f516-40ff-a70e-eca84e2ec9b9/D_diairesi.xls . The data of this official publication have been used in several articles of the Wikipedia, including this one: Athens, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Athens . If you read this file you will understand that the population of Athens Urban Area (without including Piraeus) is 3,165,823 people!

The population of Piraeus Urban Area (the current Piraeus Peripheral Unit) is 466,065 people (this number is not included in the population of Athens Urban Area). The population of the former Piraeus Prefecture (including the islands of the Saronic Gulf, Kythera and Antikythera) is 541,504 people.

Stop making up demographic data. The official demographic data are here: http://www.ypes.gr/UserFiles/f0ff9297-f516-40ff-a70e-eca84e2ec9b9/D_diairesi.xls and contradict what you are so stubbornly saying. Don't keep modifying the table using false data! If you are not convinced that you are wrong (although this is more than obvious), you should contact a senior moderator to find a solution in this dispute.


It is not wise to attempt to intimidate a new member of the wikipedia community (who, understandably, is not as experienced as you do in using wikipdia's various features), and you should try to be more polite and less rude. As you said, "it's not like you knew me from yesterday".
You refuse to reply to the official statistic data I quoted in my posts (http://www.ypes.gr/UserFiles/f0ff9297-f516-40ff-a70e-eca84e2ec9b9/D_diairesi.xls).
My entire argument is based on the fact that Piraeus is a city by itself, it is a Peripheral Unit by itself, it was a Prefecture by itself, it is an urban area by itself, and it is composed of two autonomous electoral districts with no relation to the electoral districts of Athens.
According to the official data of the Greek Ministry of the Interior, the population of Athens Urban Area (without taking into account Piraeus) is 3,165,823 people.
The population of Piraeus Urban Area (Piraeus Peripheral Unit) is 466,065 people.
These are the official data and you haven’t contradicted them thus far.
According to the data you are posting, Piraeus has its own distinct urban area (the Piraeus Urban Area with a population of 466,065 people), but it belongs in the wider metropolitan area of Athens (with a population of 3,761,810).
You are confusing the terms "urban area" and "metropolitan area", because in Greek language we use the same words for these two notions and there is no distincion between them.
According to your data, Piraeus has its own "urban area" (which coincides with the limits of Piraeus Peripheral Unit), but it doesn't have its own "metropolitan area".Nicephore (talk) 22:24, 20 July 2011 (UTC)


I don’t like and I don’t intend to make any personal attacks to any member of wikipedia’s community.
Frankly, this is neither my style nor the way I am used to behave.
I have nothing personal with you (I don’t know you at all, how I could have a personal argument with you?).
The problem here is that we have an argument on whether Piraeus has its own urban area, while being part of the Athens metropolitan area.
I am sure that my opinion is correct, and the same thing happens with you.
It is impossible to find a solution without seeking arbitration from senior, experienced editors.
If you read wikipedia’s entry on Athens, you will find out that “The Attica Periphery itself is split into eight peripheral units, out of which four form the Greater Athens area [i.e. North Athens, West Athens, Central Athens, South Athens]”.
According to the same wikipedia’s entry, “the population of Athens Urban Area is 3,165,823 people, […] the population of the Athens metropolitan area is 3,761,810 people”.
Wikipedia makes a clear distinction between the “Athens urban area” and the “Athens metropolitan area” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Athens).
The passage you are quoting from the website of the Municipality of Piraeus is misleading.
First of all, this info is not valid any more after the Kallikratis reform.
These data are outdated and make reference to municipalities which do not exist anymore (such as the municipalities of Drapetsona or Agios Ioannis Rentis).
The Greek term “πολεοδομικό συγκρότημα” is an urban planning term and in modern Greek legal and administrative texts it is used in a different meaning and context than the one you have understood. In that context, this term is used with its legal and administrative sense, not with its architectural meaning.Nicephore (talk) 23:07, 20 July 2011 (UTC)

Template talk:Largest cities of Greece[edit]

It goes without saying that in Greece a municipality does not necessarily form a distinct city or town. Your example with Kalamaria in Thessaloniki’s metropolitan area is a nice example. I could also cite many other examples: for instance, the municipality of Perama belongs to the Piraeus’ metropolitan area, or the municipality of Galatsi belongs to the Athens’ metropolitan area. We agree on that point…

But, Piraeus is not just a municipality distinct from Athens, Piraeus (unlike Kalamaria, Perama, or Galatsi) is the capital of a peripheral unit (“periferiaki enotita” in Greek), which is called “Piraeus Peripheral Unit”.

Piraeus was for about 160 years [i.e. up to December 2010, when a new law, called the “Kallikratis” law, reformed the administrative division of Greece by abolishing prefectures and establishing peripheries] the capital of a Prefecture, which was called “Piraeus Prefecture”. [Kalamaria, Perama or Galatsi have never been capitals of a Prefecture]

Piraeus elects its own Members of Parliament [Kalamaria doesn’t] and it is divided into 2 electoral districts: i) “Alfa Pireos kai Nison” (in Greek), ii) “Vita Pireos kai Nison” (in Greek). In Greece an electoral district corresponds to the borders of a former Prefecture!

By all means, from an administrative point of view, Piraeus doesn’t belong to Athens (it belongs to the larger Periphery of Attica, but that’s irrelevant with the topic of our discussion). In all official documents issued by the Greek authorities, Piraeus is counted as a city distinct from Athens.

By the way, the Piraeus Urban Area (including two electoral districts) is made up of several municipalities: Municipality of Piraeus, Municipality of Keratsini-Drapetsona, Municipality of Perama, Municipality of Nikaia, Municipality of Aigaleo, Municipality of Korydallos, etc. Since it seems that you don’t know well Piraeus and you think that Piraeus is a suburb of Athens, please read the following articles: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piraeus_Prefecture ; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piraeus_(peripheral_unit) . — Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.202.157.142 (talk) 16:11, 20 July 2011 (UTC)


Template talk:Largest cities of Greece (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Largest_cities_of_Greece)[edit]

It is true that Piraeus belongs in the greater urban area of Athens, being the historic seaport of Athens. However, from an administrative point of view, Piraeus is not included in the Athens metropolitan area. Piraeus has its own (independent from Athens) municipality (http://www.piraeus.gov.gr/); Piraeus used to be for almost 160 years (up to December 2010, when prefectures were abolished in Greece) the capital of Piraeus Prefecture, which included the islands of the Saronic Gulf (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saronic_Gulf) as well as the islans of Kythera (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kythera) and Antikythera (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antikythera); and, most importantly, Piraeus is nowadays the capital of the Peripheral Unit of Piraeus (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peripheral_units_of_Greece ; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peripheries_of_Greece). Furthermore, Piraeus has its own electoral districts: i) the “Piraeus first electoral district” (which includes the municipality of Piraeus), and ii) the “Piraeus second electoral district” (which includes Piraeus’ suburbs, such as Keratsini, Perama, Drapetsona, Nikaia etc). Therefore, the citizens of Piraeus elect their own MPs and they are represented in the Greek Parliament by the MPs elected in Piraeus and not by those elected in Athens.

Administratively, Piraeus is totally independent from Athens! It is a different municipality, belonging in a different peripheral unit, having its own electoral districts!

According to the official data available by the Hellenic Statistical Authority (http://www.statistics.gr/) and the Municipality of Piraeus (http://www.piraeus.gov.gr/) the wider area of Piraeus includes the homonymous municipality and six more municipalities-suburbs with a total population of 466.065 and an extent of 50.4 square metres.

I would like to underline the fact that in the table depicting the largest Greek cities the population of Athens (3,165,823) does not include the population of Piraeus, simply because Piraeus is not a part of Athens!

As aforesaid, officially, the Piraeus urban area is the third largest urban area of Greece with a population of 466.065 people. That’s why the correct version of the table is this one: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Template:Largest_cities_of_Greece&direction=prev&oldid=440483607. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nicephore (talkcontribs) 14:50, 20 July 2011 (UTC)

First off, the area you are referring to is not in fact white. It really does not assist communication when you call something "white" when in actual fact it is not "white". Second, the problem you pointed out is actually a bug with the rendering software, not a problem with my SVG code, as seen by the fact that it does not appear in the non-thumbnailed version of the image (which is what I was looking at).

Your comment is irrelevant; the region has been called 'Macedonia' by Greek authorities since 1912. --Philly boy92 (talk) 23:20, 20 January 2011 (UTC)
nothing is as irrelevant as you would like it to be. ask Rainbow(political party) or father Nikodim or as much as any peasant in aegean macedonia. i think it's better if you revert yourself your revertation. for the sake of the killed ones. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.125.225.45 (talk) 23:45, 20 January 2011 (UTC)
First of all, make an account and don't leave unsigned comments. Second of all, what you are saying is in no way relevant to the topic at hand. The Greek authorities have been calling the region 'Macedonia' since 1912, regardless of if you want to accept that fact or not. Prosecution against Macedonians and other speakers of slavic languages in Greek Macedonia is completely irrelevant with the fact that it was been called 'Macedonia' since the time it was incorporated. For the record, the Ministry for Macedonia and Thrace was founded under the name 'General Administration for Macedonia' in 1912. --Philly boy92 (talk) 23:53, 20 January 2011 (UTC)

I hardly represent the Greek lobby; I am not in favor of the "Macedonia is Greek" position, but nor am i a supporter of the "Macedonia to the Macedonians" position :) Simply because you disagree with it doesnt mean it must be your way :) The Greek maps call it 'Macedonia' and as such this is what we will use on the Macedonia (Greece) article, unless you have some Greek sources to show us that prove the contrary :) If I am not mistaken you said that it was not officially called 'Macedonia' before the late 80s - I added a map on the article that proves otherwise. Where is your source? :) --Philly boy92 (talk) 00:17, 21 January 2011 (UTC)
you are not for "megali" idea? i almost dropped unconscious. i don't need that part of Macedonia as well. i just need a confession and admitting of the exodus . that's all. anyway we visit every summer. my source is my memory. i remember a Macedonian at a gas station in Greece whispering to me on his mother tongue. i remember that i had to say that i come from Yugoslavia and not Macedonia. i remember two of my friends beaten up by your cop for that. one of your not so stupid generals appeared on our television and he said that he was for federation between Macedonia and Greece. that can be done but first your youth needs to wash their fathers bloody hands

EON emblem[edit]

Hello! You are right in so far as the emblem was widely used: EON was virtually the only mass organization of the regime, and Metaxas liked to be seen with "his" youth. The images you present are from addresses to EON assemblies, so naturally the EON emblem would be used. It was certainly a political symbol (and the labrys is hence associated with the Greek far right), but it never replaced the Kingdom's CoA or come to enjoy similar status, unlike the Nazi Party Eagle which became the national emblem or the Italian royal CoA which was altered to include the fasces. Constantine 19:49, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

No problem. Feel free to ask at my talk page or over at WP:GREECE. I myself have rather limited sources directly available on the Metaxas period, but I can always go look for more! CHeers, and keep up the good work! Constantine 21:29, 11 March 2011 (UTC)

Names of Thessaloniki[edit]

Hi,

you just reverted me on names of Thessaloniki. I could bring this to the article talk page, but I thought it might be easier to clarify my intent directly with you.

In 2007 a "name" section was created to pull non-Greek names from the opening lines of the article. It seemed at the time the least-bad option, as there was organized edit-warring against having "Selanik" or "Solun" at the top. (From that time I'll take credit, or discredit, if you prefer, for pretty much rewriting the lede into its current form). In any case, an unhappy compromise was being forced by the entrenched bloc to struggle for the name Solun. Historically, Bulgarian and the local Macedonian Slav language had been used in and around Salonika. Edit warring was particularly fierce to keep "Macedonian Slav" out of the article. "South Slavic" languages was, I believe, my proposal, to get at least indirect reference to them back in. It was the best that was doable at the time, but it was wrong. There is no historic significance to SBH or any other South Slav language in Salonika. In the current version, "South Slav" is a euphemism for Bulgarian and Macedonian Slav. Jd2718 (talk) 23:24, 12 June 2011 (UTC)

I am on my phone at the moment so I'll just cut to the chase. My objection was to include just Macedonian and Bulgarian, because Solun is used in almost all South Slavic Languages, not just the two. If you like I think it is a fair compromise to add "including Mac. and Bulg." or something similar. Cheers for bringing this to the talk page. --Philly boy92 (talk) 23:30, 12 June 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the quick reply. I tried this. See what you think, and if I am off, please fix it. (BTW, I see it is your city. It is a spectacular place.) Jd2718 (talk) 23:45, 12 June 2011 (UTC)

A few things[edit]

  • Byzantine Empire

First, please don't revert numerous changes because you object to one minor aspect of those changes. Second, we never include the language a state's inhabitants happen to speak in the first sentence'. Let's be realistic for two seconds- the Byzantine Empire is a well known subject of Greek nationalism, and the only reason that it's defined as a "predominantly Greek-speaking" empire is because a Greek nationalist put it there. Third, you're correct: Greek influence is a major distinction from Ancient Rome. That has nothing whatsoever to do with any of my edits. Regards!

thess population[edit]

you say "NO OTHER country but Greece publishes censuses on the population of Thessaloniki" yet on the table below the 2004 results are from Eurostat and show an increased population for the municipality. Wont it be relevant to say that the last two censuses that showed a decline in population were the Greek ones? ...because a latest census (that is non-Greek) shows an increase in population instead for the municipality. Although an unsignificant issue, just wanted to clarify that out, so that the reading of the article is improved — Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.190.108.175 (talk) 01:39, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

Yes, but Eurostat publishes data not censuses. --Philly boy92 (talk) 01:44, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

although it is data, for anyone reading the article they usualy pick it up as a "census". Thats why I think its relevant to clarify that the last two censuses that showed a decline pattern were Greek, while the increased population for 2004 (data or estimate that it may be) is understood as being non-greek solely because there is an increase now in population. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.190.108.175 (talk) 01:58, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

This could also be done by saying "although recent data by Eurostat show...". Also, the Census 2011 will be published soon, so I really don't think there is any need for this. --Philly boy92 (talk) 02:05, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

it can be done by writing a whole new sentense, but its better just by writing "Greek censuses" so it is clarified for now, up until the new 2011 results are published. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Thessalonian101 (talkcontribs) 02:10, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

Republic of Macedonia[edit]

From my talk page:

Hi. Just to let you know, you have been pushing your Point of View on the Republic of Macedonia page. You have overriden by reverts twice, and keep in mind that any further edits of the sort may constitute a violation of Wikipedia's 3 revert rule which could get you blocked. The changes you are making to the article are incorrect. The "Republic of Macedonia" is not for domestic use, and "FYROM" is most certainly not for "international" use. The term FYROM is a UN provisional designation, and the Republic of Macedonia is not obliged to call itself FYROM. I suggest before making such edits again you read the Interim Accord in its entirety. If you are stil interested in making the change, please discuss it on the article's talk page first. Thanks --Philly boy92 (talk) 14:38, 31 August 2011 (UTC)

See the talk:Republic of Macedonia page. Apologies for the appearance of edit warring: You were reverting so quickly between my edits, they didn't even appear on the conflict page. I was getting someone else's, which weren't reverts of what I'd been doing. Plus, of course, you're wrong: nearly 20 years is neither wikt:provisional nor wikt:temporary and they are obliged to be called that by the UN and presumably other international organizations. — LlywelynII 14:41, 31 August 2011 (UTC)

I dont understand how you think they are copyright violations!! Source is attached and the sites of were they come from make no claim to any copyright attached to them. They are circulated freely in puclic domain. Especialy images from aggelioforos mention they make all their photos freely available, the same goes for public government websites were the park map came from. And what do you mean with Arata Isoszaki he didnt take the photo the photo was taken by the source that was mentioned and made the picture freely available. There a tons of city articles that include photos that have are freely circulated in public domains I dont understant why there cant be any for Thessaloniki too especialy when the article is in need for some updated photos. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Thessalonian101 (talkcontribs) 06:38, 15 September 2011 (UTC)

what about the seich sou map were it also lets you freely download the pdf I see no copyright attached to that and btw it comes from a goverment website ..i have seen tons of articles were they have similar links to photos maybe i dint apply the correct licence?

"As for Arata Isozaki, no he did not take the picture but the design is his intellectual property." so what you are saying as long as he is alive no one can post images of his work?? that image has been circulated everywere — Preceding unsigned comment added by Thessalonian101 (talkcontribs) 07:09, 15 September 2011 (UTC)

Thessaloniki bombings[edit]

I don't know what exactly was POV pushing about my post. The Thessaloniki bombings of 1903 are a very important part of the city's history. Are you suggesting that it should not be included simply because the "IMRO" is mentioned? I have seen some nationalist users engage is such activity before, but I don't think you're one of them. Anyway, you can read more about the Thessaloniki bombings in "Salonica: A City of Ghosts" by Mark Mazower, there is large section on it. The goal of the bombers was to draw attention from the Great Powers of the time over Ottoman oppression in Macedonia. Apart from blowing up the bank (a significant landmark of the city today), and the French ship, the group also had plans to attack the post office, the city's power generating plant, and several cafes on the water front. Their actions were so significant that the Ottomans declared marshal law on the city and a curfew was introduced. So now your're telling me that this is not relevant to the city's history???

National Emblem of Greece[edit]

Dear Philly boy92, I see you are interested in the Greek Emblem. However, I am pretty sure that this emblem should be displayed as the correct one. Neither the ΦΕΚ nor the Greek passports do they indicate any circles around the emblem in its simplest form. I imagine you have taken your last design from presidency.gr but I would not trust them very much. Indeed, I think that the encircled emblem is used by the ministries in their seals. So, I suggest we simply inverse the emblems. Dimboukas (talk) 18:59, 3 February 2012 (UTC)

Makedonia TV[edit]

Hello Philly boy92, Ευχαριστώ για τις παρατηρήσεις σου για τη σελίδα του Μακεδονία TV. Παρ'όλα αυτά θα ήθελα αν επισημάνω τα εξής:

  • Τα Greeklish χρησιμοποιήθηκαν καθώς δεν υπάρχει αντίστοιχος τίτλος στα Αγγλικά. Παρ'όλα αυτά βοήθησα βάζοντας έναν τίτλο ο οποίος παραπέμπει στον αντίστοιχο Ελληνικό.
  • Η πηγή είναι αξιόπιστη όσο δε γίνεται. Δουλεύω στο δημιουργικό του Μακεδονία TV και απο εμάς βγαίνει όλο το υλικό. Στη διάθεσή σου για οποιοδήποτε τρόπο διασταύρωσης.
  • Αν κάπου φάνηκε 'διαφημιστικό' το άρθρο, ελεύθερα να το διορθώσουμε απο κοινού μιας και η δικιά σου εμπειρία είναι μεγαλύτερη στον τρόπο σύνταξης. Παρ'όλα αυτά όμως διαφωνώ με τη ριζική αλλαγή του σε κείμενο που δεν συμφωνεί τουλάχιστο με την εταιρία που αναφέρεται.
  • Είναι το original logo το οποίο αλλάχτηκε στις αρχές του 2014 και παίζει ήδη στο πρόγραμμα του Μακεδονία TV. Λόγω περιορισμού στο δυναμικό μας δεν έχει αλλαχτεί ακόμη στο website.
  • Είμαι ανοιχτός στο πως θα μπορούσε να μπεί πιο σωστά το logo.

Παρακαλώ πολύ στο εξής να μη απορρίπτεις τις αλλαγές που κάνω (gas75) εκτός κι αν παραβαίνουν (απο λάθος) τους κανόνες της Wikipedia (π.χ. διαφημιστικά) Είμαι στη διάθεσή σου να διασταυρώσεις τα λεγόμενά μου ως επίσημος αντιπρόσωπος του καναλιού Μακεδονία TV.

Με εκτίμηση Κώστας Αρβανιτίδης Gas75 (talk) 12:43, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

Καλησπέρα και πάλι, Ευχαριστώ για τον χρόνο που διαθέτεις. Έχω να παρατηρήσω τα εξής:

  • Συμφωνώ απόλυτα με τις παρατηρήσεις για τα 'greeklish' καιθα διορθώσω το κείμενο όπως χρειάζεται.
  • Το logo που επιμένεις να χρησιμοποιείς ειναι έτσι κι αλλιώς λάθος. Ούτε παραπέμπει στο προηγούμενο logo του σταθμού μας. Ακόμη και αυτό που έχει παραμείνει στο web είναι διαφορετικό απο αυτό που παρουσιάζεται στη σελίδα της Wikipedia (διαφορετικά gradient). Αποτελεί παραποίηση του πραγματικού logo. Πόσο μάλιστα του current logo. Αν έχεις σχέση με γραφιστική θα καταλάβεις τι εννοώ.
  • Τα πνευματικά δικαιώματα του logo είναι προφανώς του δημιουργού και της εταιρίας που αντιπροσωπεύει.
  • Οι εκφράσεις όπως επιτυχημένο κτλ. συμφωνώ οτι αποτελούν διαφήμιση και ορθώς έπρεπε να διορθωθούν. Αλλά διόρθωση και όχι ριζική αλλαγή σε παλιότερο κείμενο το οποίο πιο πολύ βασίζεται στη γεωγραφική θέση του καναλιού και όχι στο ίδιο το κανάλι
  • Σε ένδειξη καλής θέλησης αφήνω στη δικιά σου κίνηση να επιστρέψει το προηγούμενο κείμενο ως είχε, αλλά φυσικά χωρίς τα διαφημιστικά κείμενα.

Ευχαριστώ για τη καλή συνεργασία. Κώστας Αρβανιτίδης Gas75 (talk) 14:22, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

Aegean Airlines[edit]

Regarding the article for Aegean Airlines

Aegean Airlines' website is outdated: It does not include SX-DGN and SX-DGP in its fleet count, these planes fly for Aegean.

Same goes for the airline's destinations. The reason I cited Olympic Air's website is that it says the fly to 18 destinations (see Olympic Air destinations). So, for example, Lemnos may not be on Aegean's website list of destinations because it started less than a couple of months ago. (Further proof that the airline's website is outdated). 55 is the number of destinations served by Aegean Airlines as you can see here: Aegean Airlines destinations

I understand that you prefer the official website of the airline as a source but on this occasion the website is not well maintained.

I am not going to revert the article to its previous form myself to avoid editwarring, if you find my message convincing please do so yourself, otherwise we can discuss it :)

Thakaran 14:43, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

The domestic destinations not accounted for are 4: Cephalonia, Kavala, Lemnos, Samos.
The international destinations are 9: Tirana, Sofia, Strasbourg, Hanover, Bucharest, Belgrade, Stockholm, Manchester and one London airport (since 2 are served).
Rostov is accounted for although it was last served in 2012 and is therefore not included in our count in Wikipedia until it resumes in 2014.
43 + 4 domestic + 9 international - 1 (Rostov) = 55

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 17:42, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Casta Tomb entrance.png[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Casta Tomb entrance.png. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Ronhjones  (Talk) 14:13, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 15[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Mytilene, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Capital. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
